Once And For All, Here's How To Break In New Shoes

Who doesn’t love getting a brand new pair of shoes?! Stilettos, pumps, boots–you always have something that needs to be restocked. The only downfall of grabbing a fresh pair is that new shoe feel, namely that tightness or stiffness that goes hand in hand with a pair right off of the shelf. You have to break them in before they become your go-to. And if you still haven’t figured out how to work in those new purchases, here are a few ways to break in new shoes that really work.

1.Wear them around the house. One of the easiest ways to break in those uncomfortable new shoes is to actually wear them. But that doesn’t mean you have to stay in them all day long. Just slip them on for a few minutes each day to start breaking them in.

2.Stretch them out with socks. While you’re walking it out in your new heels for 5-10 minutes a day, do it while wearing socks that’ll help you stretch out the shoes so that they aren’t so tight or stiff to walk in.

3.Freeze your shoes overnight. One of the most popular tricks out there is the freezer hack. Fill two plastic bags with water, stick them in your shoes, and freeze the shoes overnight. Then take them out, and once they thaw, you should notice that they fit better.

4.Buy some stretching spray. Go ahead and invest in a solution that will help to stretch out those new shoes, making them easier to wear. Check the store to see if they have a brand that you can purchase, or do a quick search online to find a spray that’s right for your shoes.

5.Pull out the blow dryer. When you’re dealing with shoes that are extra tight in places, take out your blow dryer, and try pointing it at the area for a few seconds to loosen up the fabric. Always gauge whether or not the shoe fabric should be exposed to heat, as some synthetic fabrics are sensitive. Most importantly, make sure that your put the dryer on the lowest setting!
